    Sure it boils down to personal opinion, but I'm curious as to what most people think.

    I might think it was cool if I was sixteen and trying to impress 15 year old girls. Otherwise, lame.

    Ya they're annoying. When i first got my rex it had a greddy type s on, sounded like a asthmatic trying to breath. Switched to stock the next day. Not that we're on the subject but I do love the sound of EWGs though.

    BOV dont impress me or anything. My car came with an HKS SSQV, and i took that **** off.

    I kind of look down on a wrx/sti with a BOV though because most wrx/sti's don't use them.

    It's cool i guess on a supra, skyline, or srt4.

    its rice on a honda, vw, or any other slow turbo car.....maybe even the wrx

    read the thread.. This one, that you've posted in. The answers are here, and have been posted numerous times.

    The 08 isn't much different than the previous issues before it.

    about your 08 hatch...like i said, as long as its a plumb back/recirculating or daul port bov youll be fine...its the full atmospheric bov's that cause your motor to run really rich and destroy it

    Yes I had. Since then I noticed quite a few people reading that thread, but not actually making a comment (probably for the same reason I made it in the first place, to see what others think). I just found out you could do a poll for NEW threads. So to make things a bit interesting/useful, I created this one. You'll just have to ignore me repeating myself

    I don't think even a good dozen posts of the same question will change the answer. Although I thought I might try No Seriously I had just created it to utilise the poll feature. A lot of ppl were visiting the last one. So ppl might find this one a bit more useful (personally during the last post I've decided against it).

    Oh yeah, keep an eye out for my 3rd & 4th post, they should be appearing later today
